Historical Traveler Reviews Super 8 Austin Airport, South
Superb Super 8
When a business associate recommended this hotel, I had my doubts. Turns out it is a new facility and an excellent accommodation. Our room would class as a suite. Everything was clean, the staff was excellent, and the place was quiet. The location is convenient to downtown Austin. I would stay again.
Herrliches Super 8
Als mir ein Geschäftskollege das Hotel empfahl, hatte ich so meine Zweifel. Es stellte sich heraus, dass es eine neue Einrichtung und eine ausgezeichnete Unterkunft ist. Unser Zimmer könnte man als Suite bezeichnen. Alles war sauber, das Personal ausgezeichnet und das Hotel ruhig. Das Hotel befindet sich in der Nähe der Innenstadt. Ich würde wieder dort absteigen.
Super 8 superlativo
Quando un collega mi ha consigliato questo albergo ero un po' scettico. Invece la struttura era nuova e la camera eccellente. La nostra camera sarebbe classificabile come suite. Era tutto pulito, il personale era eccellente, e il posto era silenzioso. La posizione è comoda per il centro di Austin. Ci tornerei.
Loved this place!!
We just returned from 6 nites in Austin. Because it was a very busy weekend for conferences, we ended up staying in 3 different places: the Austin Motel, Adams House B and B, and this Super 8. All were priced about $100 per nite, give or take with taxes. The 1st two were our real choices but neither had rooms for the weekend. But we were surprised that the Super 8 was by far the most comfortable. Each Super 8 is individually owned and the Kumars, who own this one, make every effort to insure a comfortable stay. There is a great deal of sweetness in the desk staff as well as a lovely welcome letter from Mr. Kumar. The comforts are numerous. First off, the bed is super comfortable with lovely soft linens. The TV has DVD and VHS built in . There are black out curtains so that sleeping late is easy. There is a free massage chair in the lobby that eased the travel tensions. The breakfast is more than continental and fabulous dessers are set out each evening. Coffee is always available. Everything appears new and spotless. Should we have wanted to, we could have done our laundry there. Last year we stayed at the downtown Hyatt and not to diminish the Hyatt, the care and quality of this property is just as nice. It isn't far from the downtown part of the city, but having a car is absolutely necessary.
A Suite is not really a suite
We stayed in the incredibly large Family Suite, which is really just a very large room and not a suite at all. There is an arch on the ceiling that seperates the seating area from the bed area, but NO DOOR. We were intending to put the baby to bed in the bedroom and close the door so we could watch TV, but that obviously wasn't possible. We ended up having to keep her awake a little late and we all went to bed at the same time. We also liked the full kitchen idea, but it had NOTHING in the numerous cabinets to use in the kitchen. A few dishes, but they were grimy and there was no dish soap or scrubby thing, so we couldn't use them. No silverware, no bowls, no pots/pans, no hot pads. All empty cabinets. A brand new stove and no way to use it! So we had to use all plastic and styrofoam anyway, which I HATE!
The TV was enormous, the pillows were plentiful, the bed was SUPER comfortable, the staff was very nice. The breakfast was better than your average continental. The location was a little out of the way from downtown (you have to have a car with you, not walkable to anything) but easy to find if you don't use the crappy map we had!
Just Have Your Own Transportation...Otherwise, A Good Value
Since we were not familiar with the Austin area this hotel seemed to have what we needed. We just needed a one night stay and a shuttle to the airport. Upon arriving the desk person was friendly. The advertising from the hotel site stated 24-hour shuttle service but when we checked in asked for a shuttle to return us to the hotel after dropping off our rental car. The hotel was only about 2 miles away. She informed us that all shuttle service had to be scheduled in advance. When telling her it was in advance of a few hours she said there was no shuttle available. So, instead of returning our rental car to the airport and saving a day's rental charge we had to keep it for another night to drive ourselves back to the airport in the morning. After adding up what a cab would have cost, it was not worth the hassle. They say they will pick you up from the airport and return you there but it was not so for us. The room was comfortable but very noisy from neighboring rooms. There was a snoring man next door that vibrated through the walls. You could hear the people walking in the rooms one floor up clearly. Nice shower and a good supply of towels and pillows. A coffee maker was supplied as well as the necessary toiletries. The air conditioner worked well. They serve a continental type breakfast starting at 6am but we skipped that. There were several other hotels we saw that looked closer to the airport and one right on the airport property. That will be our next visit.
Wir hatten einen herrlichen Aufenthalt!!!
Das Hotel ist kein übliches Super 8. Es gibt einen 27 Zoll-Flachbildfernseher (einige Zimmer haben sogar einen 72 Zoll-Fernseher), DVD-Player, Videorecorder, und zwar alles in ihrem Standard-Zimmer. Es gibt ein Businesscenter und ein Fitnesscenter, die man kostenlos benutzen kann!!!! Für 70 bis 80 Dollar pro Tag ist das Hotel wirklich super. Das Frühstück ist im Preis inbegriffen und jeden Abend werden Snacks serviert. Man kann sogar in der Lobby DVDs ausleihen. Insgesamt finde ich, dass es für Leute mit schmalem Geldbeutel ideal ist, um Austin zu besuchen. Würde auf jeden Fall wieder hier absteigen.
¡¡¡Nos lo pasamos de maravilla!!!
Este sitio no es como los normales Super 8. Tiene televisión plana de 27 pulgadas (algunas habitaciones la tienen incluso de 72 pulgadas), reproductor de DVD, video, todo en su habitación estándar. Tienen un centro de negocios complementarios y un centro de fitness todo gratuito!!!! Por unos 70-80 dólares al día este lugar es realmente increíble. Tienen un desayuno complementario y snacks de noche que sirven a diario. Incluso alquilan DVD en el vestíbulo. En su conjunto creo que es un gran sitio para estar en Austin cuando tienes presupuesto suficiente. Sin duda alguna volvería aquí otra vez.
Had a Wonderful Stay !!!
This place is not like your regular Super 8. They have a 27inch flat screen TV (few of the rooms have even a 72 inch) ,DVD player, VCR , all in their standard room. They have a complimentary business center and fitness center all free !!!! For about 70-80 bucks/day this place is really awesome. They have a complimentary breakfast and evening snacks served daily. They even have DVD rentals in the lobby. All together I think this is a great place to stay in Austin when on a budget. Would definitely stay here again.
My husband and I ran accross this hotel after having a terrible experience with another
hotel which I really don't care to mention. Now, when we saw it we thought super 8, not really knowing what to expect. But this super 8 is not like your average super 8, it is a really fabulous place to stay. It really exceeded all of my expectations. Plush bedding plasma tv's throughtout the hotel even in the elevator. Evening snacks and great continental breakfast. Not to mention the wonderful people working there, they do their best to make your stay really comfortable. If your traveling with children I want to mention that they offer dvd and vhs players built in to the tv's. They also offer a wide veriety of movies for rent for a small fee. Another plus is that you can check in at 2:00 and check out isn't unitl noon, not many hotels offer that any more . The hotel is not very far from downtown, and the front desk offers you a map to many popular locations and did mention when you check in you'll recieve a goodie bag filled with all kinds of stuff. I will definetly be back!

Left our accommodation and 7 to fly to Dallas. The breakfast at the hotel wasn't open so we had to buy breakfast at the airport. Our first leg of the flight was to Dallas then a half an hour stop over in Dallas before flying on to austin. The second flight was only about 25 minutes in the air. Once we had arrived in Austin we collected our bags and got a taxi ...
... to check out the Capitol building, the government is always open for business in America right? We jumped on a free tour (whoop whoop) and got to see where all the laws of the land are made. In the main hall they have portraits of all the previous Governors of Texas. The most recent picture was of the one and only George W Bush, who was governor until 2000. I was confused to how the last governor could be 14 years ago until we discovered that Texas' current governor is Rick ...
What had started last night continues today. Rain. And because of a little bit of rain (by European standards) the 3rd day of the festival is cancelled.
I honestly cannot believe this, nor can any of the other festival visitors.

We did go out for drinks after the day was over last night. The faculty concert was full of Spanish Medieval music, but when we went out for drinks, there was a great rock trio playing. It was good to let our mind be free for a bit.
